For one weekend only, canadajoe was unitedstatesjoe. A quick trip* down to Buffalo to see little sis! *not at all quick.
Some suggested that there would be nothing worth seeing in Buffalo. Not at all true! Go Buff! ‘The City of No Illusions’. Haha.
The Albright-Knox Gallery was excellent. Currently hosting this amazing American topographical landscape photography exhibition by Victoria Sambunaris.
Somebody got their canoes all tangled up. Annoying when that happens.
And what’s this? Is it America’s third best neighborhood [sic]? Yes, it must be Elmwood, Buff!
Frank Lloyd Wright loved Buff. He thought it was the best. Probably cos it was swimming in cash at the time he was designing houses for very rich people. Here’s his Martin House Complex. Not bad for 1904, but no Falling Water.
Where’s the front door?
And then it took nine hours to get home. It’s not even that far away. And, even more crazily, the US immigration man was nicer than the Canadian immigration woman. Who’d have thought?
